Agloco - a piece of the cake

I am not generally much interested in money making from my blog mainly because I find the ads a pain in the butt. One site though has made me think again. It doesn't oblige you to have irritating ads spoiling the page and its aims, while not philanthropic, could be summarised as 'a piece of the cake for everyone'.

Agloco is, as they say, the internet's first economic network. The idea is that, while users create the internet network, especially networking sites such as Facebook from which companies generate billions of advertising and marketing opportunities, the users are not actually getting a piece of the financial action. Agloco aims to rectify that.

It's free to join, after which you are paid by various means:
  • Members earn a monthly share of the AGLOCO revenue based on the use of the AGLOCO Viewbar™ that month.
  • Members earn part of the company based on the use of the AGLOCO Viewbar™ that month (currently a maximum of five hours are rewarded).
  • Members who use our referral system to help build the AGLOCO network will earn more. (AGLOCO only has significant value as a large network and people who help build it should be rewarded. – We also feel that the early users who told friends about YouTube or MySpace or even Google probably deserved something too, but no referral system was available to record their work).
  • Members will also get a share of any commissions AGLOCO gets when a Member purchases a product or service from an AGLOCO Sponsor company.
Seems fairly painless, doesn't it?

I'm not going to witter on about this. If you'd like to find out more, click here.

  1. gtcMmmm. Maybe it's because I'm composing a blog post right now about a Swiss bank's dodgy-looking equity release scheme that I'm in full "let the buyer beware" mode, although in this case there's no signing up fee, so there's no risk in that sense.

    The scheme is all about recruiting members, who in turn recruit more members, and you get a payout based on the total hours they all spend surfing.

    Presumably a particular individual can only be recruited once, so as time goes by it will get harder and harder to find folk who are not already recruited. The name itself ( Agloco, short for A Global Community) leaves one in no doubt that it's about recruitment pure and simple. Is it any different, I wonder, from all those other pyramiid and MLM schemes ? Maybe if you get in early, Sarah, you can make a killing. Go for it girl, but I think I'll stay aloof, preferring an uncluttered look to busy viewbars.

    There was a tab that suggested you could calculate your likely earnings, but when I inputted some reasonable figures, all I got back was the number of monthly hours that would be credited, but not one sweet dicky bird about how that translates into nice shiny euros.

    The tab allows you to input a maximum of 5 hours surfing a month. That's unrealistically small - I wonder if there's not a catch there too.

  2. PS Sorry about the "gtcMmmm". I'm having trouble with jumping text (in this case from the antispam code). Anyone know what that's all about. It's presumably some kind of browser problem.
